Select Turn Windows features on or off.
Select Windows Authentication under Web Server IIS, Web Server, Security.
It takes a while to install. Restart is not needed but do a iisreset to enable it in IIS (Windows+R to display Run, input cmd, select and start as Administrator, type iisreset and Enter.
